Sears helps customers give back to those who serve

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. Sears announced that is bringing back its annual Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry to give back to the men and women who serve the United States by inviting Americans to donate to the Heroes at Home Wish Registry at www.Sears.com/heroesathome.

Now through Dec. 31, Americans can support the Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry by making a contribution to the Wish Registry either in-store or online at Sears.com/heroesathome, the company reported. Donations made to the Wish Registry are not tax deductible and will be used to purchase Sears gift cards that will be equally distributed to all registered families.

"Through the Heroes at Home Wish Registry, Sears is able to give back and say 'thanks' to the military members who selflessly protect our nation every day," said David Friedman, SVP Sears Holdings and president marketing for Sears Holdings. "The Wish Registry enables Americans to show their gratitude to our military heroes and help make the holiday season brighter."

The company announced that Sears Blue Tool Crew will launch a new military discount program for tools this Veterans Day, Nov. 11. Starting on Veterans Day, Sears will offer a 10% discount on all in-store, regularly priced tool purchases, including Craftsman tools, when customers show a valid military I.D.
